Huge thanks to our rafting guide Alice, Caleb, Whitney and Mark for an amazing day! We had perfect weather for the Elaho Expedition. With rafting, cliff jumping, lunch and actions photos included I could not recommend Sunwolf enough. From the beginning we were impressed with these guys and we were sad to see the day come to an end. Look... More

Spent a day on the Elaho and Squamish rivers rafting with the Sunwolf crew. Was impressed at every turn but not surprised. I chose this rafting outfitter months ago after calling several in the Squamish and Whistler areas. Sunwolf staff were professional and sounded fun and offered a catered BBQ salmon lunch. I chose wisely. Our guides were safety conscious... More

We went low season on the Elaho and was still very exciting. Checkout their Facebook page....Equipment good (wetsuits did not smell etc) and staff excellent. Quite pricey but no surprise really....checkout Fergies cafe in the same place for breakfast. We didn't realise but apparently the best breakfast in the area. There is pickup from Whistler etc so that helps...

We took our 5 yr old and 11 yr old on a family rafting trip down the Cheekye river. Equipment and safety were good. The guides were friendly and experienced and really engaged well with the kids. The rafting itself was fun, it's a slower river with a few low grade Rapids perfect for young kids to get excited but... More

Nice attention but not a good river to raft. I'll say level 2-3 so if you like rafting should try another river. it's a small company so the attention is very special and good food.

Hi Daniel, Thank you for taking the time to review. The level II rapids are on our Cheakamus Family Adventure and it's best for young children as it's more of a fun, splashy float down the river. Alternatively we also offer our full day Elaho Whitewater Expedition that has class III-IV rapids and is a more exhilarating experience. Always best... More
